Re: Obit: Eilert, Ernest (1845-1902)

Contact: Cheri Robertson



I am related to you. Elizabeth Eilert is my great-great grandmother. I am here in Lake County, Indiana visiting my still living 92 year old grandparents and meeting with cousins and great aunts and uncles from this family.

My grandmother is Marie Kleine Poppe. Her father was Frank Kleine (married to Clara Weis), and Frank's parents were Franz Kleine and Elizabeth Eilert Kleine. Elizabeth was my grandmother's grandmother. I have several great aunts and uncles (her siblings) still living, and all but one live here in Lake County.

My cousin, Kevin Kleine, and I were just tonight talking about Vince Eilert and asking my grandmother where he might now be. Kevin's mother was married to Ed Kleine (my grandmother's brother) and she has been exchanging Christmas cards with Vince until a few years ago. We also don't know what happened - did he move or did he die or ????

I have all the history on the Eilert family from Germany and can tell you about all the Kleines and Weis' that married in. I will be back home in Phoenix on 10/19 in the evening, so I can start catching up with you on some of this after a few days (have to go back to work unfortunately!).

Hope to hear from you, and maybe between you and me and my cousin, we can find what happened to the Eilerts. They're around here somewheres!
